Dutch photographer Aisha Zeijpveld lives and works in Amsterdam as a freelancer for a variety of commercial magazines. In her personal work she likes to experiment and focuses on people’s vulnerabilities as well as on the absurd.

In her series What Remains, Zeijpveld was inspired by Egon Schiele’s sketches and paintings of ‘unfinished’ figures. She transforms this way of sketching into her photographs by cutting out silhouettes in cardboard and having her models pose with arms, shoulders, and faces disappearing into their background. First, however, she works on pencil studies (see images at bottom.)
